STRIPES!




I teased you all a while back, with STRIPES.  Here is what I was playing with. I was asked to design a quilt for Michael Miller Fabrics, using their STRIPES collections combined with their Luscious Cotton couture SOLIDS. It was a very fun project to make them all work well together!  Using all these stripes together in one quilt was so much fun to play with. Using the Dresden template, I fussy cut the stripes letting the fabrics make great patterns with in each blade.




I do have to say I LOVE stripes in General... My house is filed with them... Bedding, rugs, walls etc... So this was a blast to make.  The RAINBOW MIGHTY STRIPE, which I used for the Binding and also for strip across the back is amazing!! the print goes all the way across the fabric... How cool is that? 60" wide!

I hear talk of a very sweet baby laying on it for ads...How sweet will that be? A perfect bright baby quilt.

It's a dark gloomy day here... raining... Puts the 'Kabosh' on our plans for the local Carnival tonight!  Hope your having a bright and cheery day! Have a great weekend!



By the way, I had so much fun taking Boo to the Cody Simpson/Big Time Rush concert...WHO'D OF THOUGHT!  I had SOOO much fun watching her being all GIDDY!!!  Why?  Little did I know our friends, friend, who came along was the guy who signed Cody to the Sony Label at age 12. Sooo, the show, and a backstage meet with Cody, pretty much still has her walking on a cloud.
